ObMath Content: This diagram reminds me of the Quadrilaterals Venn diagram in that the intersection of U.K. and Ireland being Northern Ireland is similar to the intersection of a rectangle and a rhombus is a square. Whether Ireland is either rectangle or rhombus is left as an exercise for the reader.
